Thomas

Although I adore Matthew

I have both in different versions, so I love both. My T is older though.

What the fresh hell is Matthias. Matthew in most of Europe. Along with Matheus and Matheo

Thomas

I like both but Thomas has the edge for me

I really like Matthias. Much more interesting than Thomas.

Maithias???? sorry Thomas for me

Matthias - love it (you could use Thomas as a second name).

Matthias.

Matthias is quite popular in Germany. It's pronounced Matt-EE-as

I prefer Matthias, went to school with one. We all called him Tais - pronounced tie-s

Matthias is fabulous. Utterly fabulous! Thomas-meh.

Matthias is great. Thomas is so popular.

Thomas is nice, Matthias is great (and more interesting IMO). I'm a bit surprised that people are so shocked/baffled by it!

People rarely call their DC by their full name, so think about whether you prefer Tom or Matt. There's a local Mattius who gets called Tius (tee-us) I love it.

Matthias is great. Gets my vote wink

n0ne Thu 13-Oct-16 21:39:32

Matthias!

Nah, not keen on Matthias. Thomas by a mile

Sativa Thu 13-Oct-16 21:41:40

Matthias by a mile.
Thomas is one of the most boring, common names I can think of.

Oneanddone Thu 13-Oct-16 23:00:49

Matthias. Love them both though.

They are both great names but I love Matthias and it's so much more unusual. I slightly prefer it pronounced the German way but either way is nice.

Strawberry90 Fri 14-Oct-16 04:06:06

Matthias - i literally know 5 Thomas's and Matt is nicer than tom as a nickname
